Candidates' Weekend



To celebrate your admission to Villanova University, we would like to invite you and your family to attend Candidates’ Weekend on Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, 2015.

Candidates’ Weekend is an ideal time for prospective Villanovans and their families to learn more about our community, academic programs, and campus activities.  You will have the opportunity to talk with faculty, students, administrators and staff; experience classes on Friday; tour research facilities; eat lunch in one of our award-winning dining halls; and explore our beautiful campus.

Every day, our students embark on remarkable adventures and transformative experiences.  We hope you will make Candidates' Weekend your first step in finding out what your Villanova story will be.
